of programs, social security, medicare, medicaid. but directly rebuking paul ryan and the 47% comment that got mitt romney in trouble. there may have been high arching philosophical tones but there were also those tones. >> are you embracing the 47% comment? >> no, no, i wouldn't say, i don't know if it is fair to say it wasn't partisan at all. >> this was not a speech where he stood up and said my mission is to leave office like a ronald reagan, being the president who turned around an economy, restored the confidence of a nation in its place in the world. no. he turned inward. and he said my mission here is to pick up the legacy of martin luther king and expand it as i think you've noted. that's not something he needs to work with republicans in congress for. it is something he doesn't need money for, by the way. it is, you're right, a moral agenda. but it is a very left of center argument that he made today about government. and republicans are going to go after him on that. this was a warrior president today. >> there was a more aggressive tone, you might say. let's play another moment fro
alrejected the division the term by paul ryan with the makers and the takers. >> we do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky. or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss or a sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> rick, that was the first time i've ever heard anybody make that fasz nating defense of these safety net programs. wherein parents will risk anything. they'll spend all of their money as they make it on tuition bills for their kids, with the assumption of if worse comes to worse, i can make it on social security. >> yeah, that's right. and this was a -- you might say that this was an ideological speech in the best sense of that word. and the battle of ideas and of visions is one that li
not mean we're a nation of takers. i mean, that really was a slap to the paul ryans, the small-government republicans. >> directly. paul ryan has kind of made his bread and butter saying, americans, some are makers and some are takers. >> 47% who got republicans in trouble, who got mitt romney in trouble on the campaign. and again, you saw this other side of the president today, one that was doubling down on progressivism and saying i'm not going to be pushed around this time. this is where i stand. >> we're going to take a quick break. we anticipate seeing michelle obama, president obama. a lot of eyes will be on michelle obama, wondering what she is wearing. a lot of american designers are glued to the television, waiting to see if one of their dresses will be worn by the first lady. it's apparently down to two. none of the designers have been informed whether or not michelle obama has chosen her dress. as you see t they will be seeing it for the first time. it's going to have a big impact on their careers. we'll talk about that. stay tuned. we'll be right back. we're all hav
the risks that make this country great. >> the president basically called out republican congressman paul ryan, right there. ryan accused 60% of americans of being takers instead of makers. his party campaigned on reforming medicare, medicaid and social security, but ryan reportedly got booed as he walked through this morning. ryan's reception is a striking reminder of why the republicans lost the election. today the president assured groups like the aarp and labor he hasn't forgotten his promise. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. >> some republicans are complaining now that the president's speech was too partisan and didn't reach out enough. here is a news flash. this isn't about those republican lawmakers. this is about you, the american people and the policies that the president has put forth. it's about fixing the budget without burdening the poor in this cou
to wisconsin congressman and republican vice presidential nominee, paul ryan, who called recipients of federal benefits takers during the 2012 presidential campaign. >> the commitments we make to each other, through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative, they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers, they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> obama became the first president to use the word "gay" in an inaugural address, casting the fight for gay rights as part of a broader struggle for equality. >> we, the people, declared today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal. is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebearers through seneca falls and stonewall, our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anybody else under the law. >> and if there was any question about whether president obama would go big in his second term, he answered that in this address, laying out an ambitious second-term agenda from tax reform, to immigration overhaul, pr
eight, paul ryan took a shot at it to his political peril, it was used against him when he was running for the white house. these politicians, they don't really have the spine for taking a shot at these very, very controversial so-called third rail issues and yet you can see the american people want them to, bill. bill: yeah, i think the other number that i find striking today, four years ago unemployment in the u.s. was 7.8%. and four years later on this very day it is also 7.8% as we see the first family now leave the white house, and again make the procession up to capitol hill. yet, i'm not quite sure how much that will be addressed in terms of the inaugural speech today. it may be brushed with more, perhaps a thematic theme than specific. megyn: you can't imagine he will talk about the unemployment rate which obviously isn't very good in this country and is expected now to stay at at least 7% through 2014. president obama promised if we passed the stimulus we would be no higher than 8%, of course we went up to 10%, now we are still hovering in the high single digits. we are told t
. we have put particular is down as republicans. host: so the specifics are in the paul ryan plan? guest: they are. host: jeff is in florida. caller: hi. good morning, america. i look at problems and a simple level. use it the solutions solve more than one problem. when we have 45 million lost jobs, the budget goes up. when we have 3% unemployment, your budget goes down. the american people do not know they could add to their everyday life simple things and each time america works together as a team, they can knock off one day of that $4 billion a day that we're spending. everybody hang a sign -- "turn off hot water heater." "turned on hot water heater" in the morning. that will save every american family $30 a month. guest: that is common sense. i like common sense. part of what we get out of this is to grow our economy. we are americans. putting capital at risk and finding new ways to create goods and services that people wante. i introduced the mid-atlantic jobs act 2012. it opens up coastal virginia energy for energy exploration and harvesting. it would create 18,000 jobs. we'
in by the thousands every few minutes. paul ryan just arrived. also at the capitol. we are anticipating the first family arriving soon. as well. there you see paul ryan among the dignitaries to arrive. we are going to be -- events will start to occur very quickly from here on in as we get to see more and more of the power pliers in washington arriving. we are standing by for the presidential arrival at the capitol on this historic day. a whole lot more. former secretary of state powell. he is a republican. a obama supporter and very candid about his concerns for his party's future. we will talk to him. that and more after a final commercial break. final commercial break. the president is coming out of the white house. actually before we go to commercial break, let's take a look. there you see the -- the president's mother-in-law. gloria, they will be making their way here to -- to the capitol. as the -- president's aides get ready to get in the various cars. what part of the white house is this? >> i think we are looking right now at the north door. the president has been attending a coffee with
, just taking stuff from the federal government and including paul ryan. he used that word during the campaign. and not a loan. i think it was clear, the president was directly responding to those conservatives who have used the word takers. >> let me give the president a simple test. he talked a lot about the work ethic. i have been advocating that we add a provision to unemployment that if you sign up for unemployment compensation, you have to take a course offered by a business in order to improve your job skills so at the end of your unemployment compensation you have a greater workforce capability and frankly 99 weeks of compensation is a two-year associate college degree. paying people 99 weeks. i said to the president, is there a common ground here? i agree with him, medicare is an earned benefit. social security is an earned benefit. medicaid is not. he should not lump them together. it's not about taking. how do we liberate poor americans, give them the capability to be prosperous so we don't have to worry about it because they are rising, working, doing the right things.
